Alcohol involvement in fatal crashes 2001. Technical report Subramanian, Rajesh

By: Subramanian, RajeshPublication details: Washington DC U.S. Department of Transportation, 2003; National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, ; National Center for Statistics and Analysis, ; Mathematical Analysis Division, Description: 57 sSubject(s): USA | Accident | Fatality | Drunkenness | Statistics | 811 | 842Online resources: Publikation/Publication Bibl.nr: VTI 2003.0474 RefLocation: Abstract: Alcohol related fatalities are defined as fatalities that occur in crashes where at least one driver or nonoccupant (pedestrian or pedalcyclist) involved in the crash has a positive Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) value. This report presents estimates of alcohol involvement in fatal traffic crashes that occurred during 2001. The data are abstracted from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and represent a combination of actual Blood Alcohol Conentration (BAC) test results and estimated BAC distributions when the BAC test results are not available. Estimates of alcohol involvement have been presented along various categories of interest like Driver Age, Gender and crash characteristics like rural/urban, single- vehicle/multiple vehicle crash comparisons. Charts compare the extent of alcohol involvement for the last five years and underlying data for the comparisons up to the 1982 data year are provided in the Appendix. Descriptive measures like the mean and median BAC values are catalogued in the Appendix. Also, continuous BAC distributions are provided for each of the categories.
